Her Bodies & Other Parties – Carmen Maria Machado
Yn ei llyfr cyntaf pryfoclyd, mae Carmen Maria Machado yn dymchwel y ffiniau rhwng realaeth hudol a ffuglen wyddonol, comedi ac arswyd, ffantasi a chwedleuon.
In her provocative debut, Carmen Maria Machado demolishes the borders between magical realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. A wife refuses her husband’s entreaties to remove the mysterious green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague spreads across the earth. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery about a store’s dresses. One woman’s surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted house guest. A dark, shimmering slice into womanhood, Her Body and Other Parties is wicked and exquisite.
